SA44 Dan Evans in the Evans Transport Maxim won his second 360 South Australian Title Saturday night at Sunline Speedway for RD 4 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series. At only 22 years of age Daniel has won two out of the last three S.A Title’s.
At such a young age to be recording these results shows the
talent Evans has. It was also Evans second Series feature win for the season after locking in RD 1 at Timmis Speedway.
Evans and Mark Caruso’s SA33 Cool lined up on the front row of the A with Caruso getting the start and leading for the first couple of laps. Unfortunately Caruso spun; Evans, Guerin & Lovegrove who were also running at the front avoided the incident but left WA30 Jamie Landrigan with nowhere to go and ended his night. The travelling West Australian was disappointed but casually commented – “that’s racing”; but still a disappointment for all the team that travelled from Port Headland to compete.
Caruso received top wing and rear nerf damage but was able to continue. At the same time the current series point’s leader V29 Michael Tancredi had a flat left rear which ended his race. SA96 Brendan Guerin put in a solid run locking in second place, with SA90 Michael Lovegrove home in third, SA8 Terry Pitt fourth and SA95 Jarmin Dalitz rounding out the top 5.
SA42 Jamie Hendry broke his Sunline luck with a solid 6th position. In the past Hendry hasn’t managed to get any good results at Sunline and 6th would certainly be a confidence boost to him. Another to have had a Waikerie curse is SA69 Cody Atkins and he too managed to finish the night without any damage. Caruso handled his ill handling car for 27 laps to finish in 9th and in doing do lock up some more points towards the championship.
Again weather played havoc with the night with temperatures in the mid 40’s throughout the week and winds to almost match. Then the rain clouds arrived just after Time trials forcing the venue to rework the race track before any other racing could be carried out. This was completed and the night recommenced but rain threatened all night forcing everyone to hustle around these conditions and team running to the best of their ability.
Heat wins – Jamie Landrigan, Dan Evans, Jarman Dalitz, and Michael Lovegrove
A Main results: 1st SA44 Dan Evans, 2nd SA96 Brendan Guerin, 3rd SA90 Michael Lovegrove, 4th SA8 Terry Pitt, 5th SA95 Jarman Dalitz, 6th SA42 Jamie Hendry, 7th V4 Phil Lock, 8th V16 James Wren, 9th SA33 Mark Caruso, 10th SA69 Cody Atkins, 11th SA91 Michael Fox 12th V29 Michael Tancredi, 13th VA2 BJ Harris, 14th WA30 Jamie Landrigan, 15th SA98 Cheian Perrett

After a two weekend layoff the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series head to the Riverland region of South Australia for RD4 at Sunline Speedway, Waikerie this Saturday night. “Over the past 3 shows we have travelled to S.A, Victoria & N.S.W all following the Murray River and are now heading back into SA again.
These shows are all part of our West Coast Concreting King of the River mini-series. Yes it’s a bit of travelling but we hope the couple of weekends off have given all our teams a chance to freshen up and catch up on whatever needed catching up on.” Mandy Searle says.
Saturday night’s show will also incorporate the South Australian 360 Sprintcar Title and with a $1500 purse for the winner, second paying $1100 and third $900 it is pretty good incentive for the teams. “The South Australian Sprintcar Club have sourced additional sponsors for the show and thanks must be given to All States Auditing & Accreditation and Maxwill Racing Engines for coming on board to help out.” says Searle.
Michael Tancredi’s V29 is showing a lot of speed under the wing of Crew Chief Guru Tony Bartlett will have his second run at Sunline. Tancredi has been on the podium twice already but he would love to take out the South Australian Championship and add to his collection of State title wins. Mark Caruso has slotted his 360 back in after running his 410ci engine last weekend at Murray Bridge. Caruso’s calculated driving style ensures he is always at the front of the field at the end of the feature. SA44 Daniel Evans is another that has shown increased speed this season and was unfortunate not to finish with engine failure while easily leading at Heartland in RD3. Hard charging Brendan Guerin’s SA96 is quite capable of winning, the same goes for SA90 Michael Lovegrove.
West Australian Jamie Landrigan and crew have made the trek across the Nullarbor to compete again. Landrigan actually lives in Port Hedland so it’s a long 4,000k trip for them. Landrigan ran last season at Waikerie and liked the little track so has made the trip back. Don’t rule out James Wrens V16, Jarman Dalitz SA95, Cody Atkins SA69, SA42 Jamie Hendry, SA8 Terry Pitt just to name a few more.
A strong field of 18 cars will test their skill around the small 360mtr track and with it being 12 months since they last raced their no one will have a home track advantage. This is the opening show for Sunline for the season and they can be assured that the All Stars will put on some close and exciting racing for the night.

After a nasty crash at Premier Speedway a couple of weeks ago that hospitalised Matthew Reed he returned with a recently purchased 360 power plant to run RD 3 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series at Heartland Raceway.
Reed & Crew (Dad & Pete) worked hard over the last couple of weeks repairing and rebuilding and their work paid off by taking out the A Main win.
Reeds long time involvement with the In Charge Racing Team and mentoring of young Jordyn also paid off as the pair got to share the stage with Jordyn coming home in 3rd. An elated Reed said “I worked the highline and was surprised that they kept letting me through. I had nothing to lose; I started out of 8 and was 2nd on the back straight. They must have watered the top and the car just stuck there. No one moved up and took the lane so I just stayed, that got us into that position. I was never going to catch Dan and it was bad luck for him not to finish.
Leading the race for 23 of the 25 laps was SA44 Dan Evans unfortunately his engine expired leaving him absolutely gutted and sitting on the infield. Evans was strong all night starting out by taking out the Oval Express Magazine Quick Time Award with a 14.855.
He also picked up a heat win and lined up on outside Pole for the Main. Evans had a strong lead on the field and was looking like he would take out the win with ease until his engine decided otherwise.
After a penalty at the start of the A SA33 Mark Caruso worked his way up from 20th into 5th position. Caruso was also fast all night and after damaging their engine at Murray Bridge last Saturday had to lease an engine to make it to Moama. Current Series Champ Paul Solomon made a return for Moama and with their newly built coil over car the V7 machine locked in a 2nd place.
V29 Michael Tancredi came home just short of the podium in 4th place.
The race track proved challenging for teams after the hot wind & weather played havoc in the afternoon and sealed over early in the night. “Unfortunately the track took rubber and wore tires. We cut the distance of the A from 30 laps to 25 to ensure teams would make the distance. Not a choice we make easily but we felt it was the right one last night.
We run at Moama regularly and last season had the best tracks provided to us. Sometimes the elements make things difficult at times and we just have to deal with it the best way we can.” Searle said.
Points for the West Coast Concreting King of the River: 1st V29 Tancredi-809, 2nd SA33 Caruso-796, tied on 3rd SA96 Guerin & V4 Lock-784, 5th SA44 Evans-783, 6th SA95 Dalitz & V16 Wren-772,8th V33 Holt-746, 9th VA2 Boyd-744,10th VA8 McClure-738, 11th V50 Clarke-720
Heat wins – Dan Evans, Brendan Guerin, Mark Caruso, and Eddie Lumbar
A Main results: 1st Matthew Reed, 2nd Paul Solomon, 3rd Jordyn Charge, 4th Michael Tancredi, 5th Mark Caruso, 6th Phil Lock, 7th James Wren, 8th Brendan Guerin, 9th Eddie Lumbar, 10th Chris Solomon, 11th Michael Holt, 12th Jarmin Dalitz, 13th Shaun McClure, 14th Anthony Foster, 15th Boyd Harris, 16th Darren Clarke, 17th Daniel Evans-DNF, 18th James Aronyosi -DNF 19th Chris Campbell-DNF.

Tancredi goes into the round with confidence after taking out the win last weekend at Murray Bridge Speedway. “I absolutely love Moama, it is one of my favourite tracks and I’m really looking forward to getting there.” said Tancredi at the Presentation last Saturday night. SA33 Mark Caruso will have a score to settle after being beaten in the dying stages last weekend by Tancredi and will be working towards nothing less than a win.

Chris Solomon’s V83 makes a return after missing the first 2 rounds. V78 Chris Campbell, V6 Eddie Lumbar & young Jordyn Charge’s V60 have all been competing at 410ci meetings this season but are slotting their 360’s in for the weekend and will mix it up with the All Star regulars.

In a nail biting finish to the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series RD2 the V29 Cool car of Michael Tancredi took out the win. Tancredi had been running in third place and made his move in dense traffic in the last few laps passing SA44 Dan Evans and SA33 Mark Caruso to take the lead.
Tancredi started in 8 and drove the wheels off passing car after car. Caruso who led the race for the majority of it had to be content with second and Evans third. New comer to the 360 ranks Terry Pitt looked comfortable in the SA7 taking out the Pole Shoot Out and starting off the Pole. Unfortunately for Pitt in the early laps of the main spun in turn 2 and ended his night on the infield. SA90 Michael Lovegrove came home in 4th and SA95 Jarman Dalitz rounded out the top 5.
After destroying the car at Mildura last weekend young Rookie racer Ben Morris and team rebuild and were keen to go again. Morris in the legendary SA3 again timed well and with a third and second in his heats put the young 16 year old into the Top 6 Pole Shoot Out. Morris started in 5th for the A but unfortunately got involved with the Terry Pitt incident and retained enough damage to send him to the infield.
SA90 Michael Lovegrove and SA95 Jarman Dalitz were both hard chargers thru the pack. Both started towards the rear of the field and made their passing moves early in the race to secure 4th and 5th. Dalitz also finished the night off on a high winning the Central Vic Earthworks $200 Random Draw for the second weekend in a row. “Not bad for just turning up at the Trophy Presentation, $400 in two weeks – pretty good. Thanks to Central Vic Earth Works” said Jarman.
Jed Bell drove his team mates Chad Ely’s SA22 J&J. “We slotted our engine in during the week and Chad was Crew Chief instead of driver. I was a bit nervous in case I bent it and was a bit more cautious; but it was all good and we finished the night.” said Bell.
A special tribute was performed at the start of the night for series sponsor Glen Robertson who passed away recently with teams lining up for a minutes silence along the front straight. “Glen was a fantastic guy who couldn’t do enough to help us. It was an honour to acknowledge him in this manner.” Searle said.

SA44 Dan Evans in the Evans Transport Maxim took out the win last weekend and will be hoping for a repeat. Evans was fast at Mildura breaking the track record and with Trevor Green fine tuning things will be one to watch.

Former Series & State Champ SA33 Mark Caruso is experienced at the Bridge in both 360 & 410’s and home track knowledge is sure to help.

Finally we are about to kick off our 12th season of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series at Timmis Speedway, this Sat night – Nov 3rd..
I can’t wait to see all our old teams, meet our new teams and be back at Mildura again for our opening night. With a star studded field of top 360 competitors including past 360 Australian Champions, both the Victorian and South Australian State Champions and 3 past Series Champions; and what a cool way to kick off our season with the Col Beasley Classic incorporating RD1.
As everyone remembers Col was a well-loved bloke around Mildura and passionate sprintcar competitor. He ran with us back in the day and we are really honoured to be able to hold this tribute night in his honour. ” says Mandy Searle Series Promoter.
Back by popular demand is the ‘King of the River’ with a new sponsor on board. West Coast Concreting have picked up the naming rights for this mini-series and Mildura will be Round 1 of the 5 rounds which are all based along the Murray River and has $2500 to win purse.
Well known car owner and crew guru Tony Bartlett has joined forces with the V29 Michael Tancredi team. Tancredi has been racing for a couple of seasons now but will certainly benefit from Bartlett’s knowledge. His experience is proven winning 3 series championships over the years with three different drivers.
‘Farmer’ Phil Lock is backing up for his 12th season. Locks dedication to the series has to be admired with the team only missing 1 show since the series started. After a nail biting finish for the Championship last season SA33 Mark Caruso is back to go one better this season. Caruso and Paul Solomon tied for the Championship at the final round with Solomon taking it out narrowly by winning one more A Main than Caruso.
Hard charger’s SA44 Dan Evans, SA 96 Brendan Guerin and V34 Brenten Farrer all always put on a show at Timmis and will all be aiming to take out the Beasley event. SA16 Jack Gartner is rolling into his 4th season and his results are really stepping up. Gartner who recently turned 21 would love nothing better than to put it on the podium for RD1. Chad Ely is back in his own SA22 J&J for the night. Ely has done limited 360 shows over the past couple of seasons and has some mixed emotions from Mildura a few seasons back; an A Main win will solve this.
Series regulars SA95 Jarman Dalitz, V16 James Wren, SA5 Trigga Gates just to name a few are locked in for the Beasley Classic all looking for a strong start to the season.
With the usual All Star giveaways, posters, driver autograph signing it will be lots a family fun.

Mainline originally commenced as naming rights to the All Star Challenge $10K to win show and after two years took up naming rights of the Series.
“We are very pleased that Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers have chosen to continue involvement with us again this season. Without sponsors like Mainline we cannot do what we do and cannot thank them enough for their loyal support. ”Promoter Mandy Searle says.
Andrew Elder from Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers spoke to us earlier and said “We are happy to be involved with such a proactive series. They have a great bunch of teams & competitors. We always enjoy the racing and can see the commitment the officials, drivers and crews put in every night at the skids.”

“We are honoured to have Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers back on board. Our new drivers will still have to keep practicing the name before getting up on the Dias although after such loyal support the name should flow easily by now.” Mandy Searle tells us.

The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series are pleased to announce that in conjunction with the SA Sprintcar Club they will be incorporating the 360 South Australian State Title on December 8th at Sunline Speedway, Waikerie.
“This date locks in December 8th that we originally had as ‘To Be Confirmed’ on our calendar and has to be exciting news for all our South Australian competitors now giving them 5 rounds in their home state; 2 at Sunline, 2 at Murray Bridge and 1 at Mt Gambier. We are also looking at paying out additional prize money for the 360 State Title.
When this is confirmed we will officially announce the payout. We really hope now that this will entice all of the 360 competitors back to their local tracks and helps towards getting the car count back to the good numbers that used to compete in SA. Working to get additional money for these shows also takes commitment and hopefully all the hard work will be worth it.” Promoter Mandy Searle says
All dates are now locked in for the 2018-2019 season where we are celebrating our 12th season with 12 rounds.

With the off season well under the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series has had a chance to look back on the past 11 seasons and what has been achieved since their conception back in 2007-08.
“My good friend Tom Schmeh who worked as an historian at the Knoxville Hall of Fame until recently told me in our first season – ‘Mandy you need to keep record of series winners & stats etc. so you can look back on your history’ I did wonder why back then but did as he suggested and now as the years have passed I get it and find it fascinating to look back on. By keeping records I also know when our special milestone events will happen. This season we get to celebrate our 100th series round; that’s a pretty big deal for us.
Who would have ever guessed at our first ever show at Bacchus Marsh and only18 cars in attendance that one day we would get the chance to celebrate 100 rounds.” Mandy Searle says.
• 211 drivers have competed overall.
• Phil Lock has only missed 1 show since we started. Chris Solomon, Paul Solomon, Brad Foster & Tony Moule make up the top 5 drivers that have raced the most with series. These 5 drivers are also the only ones who raced at the first ever show and been competing with us since.
• Tony Moule has won the most A Mains with Locky 2nd; Paul Solomon 3rd There has been 34 different feature winners overall.
• 3 sponsors have supported the series since the start - Max Dumesny Motorsport, GKR Transport & Sprintcar World. 6 other companies have locked in 10 seasons of support – Red Ed Sheds, Vortex Racing Products, Hoosier Tire Australia, Oval Express Magazine, IDIGIT & Maxam Printing. What an outstanding level of commitment from these companies.
• Timmis Speedway, Mildura has held the most series rounds running a total of 18 rounds, with Simpson Speedway next in line closely followed by Murray Bridge Speedway.14 different venues have held rounds.
• Both the All Star Challenge and Tyson Perez Memorial have run 8 times. The Challenge has had 7 different winners and one wash out. The Spud show has had 4 different winners. 100 different drivers have competed in the Challenge from every state in Australia and the USA. Phil Lock, John Vogels & Chris Solomon are the only 3 drivers that have competed in all 8 shows. Current Supercar Driver Tim Slade raced in the first ever Challenge. 107 different drivers have run the Spud Show.
• 10 different drivers have won the series with the first two time winner last season.
• 4 officials have been involved since day one.
• 160+ Rookies to 360 racing have competed over the years.
“When you look at these statistics you can see just some of what has been achieved over the past 11 seasons. The dedication of our drivers, sponsors and officials is amazing. The car count still stays strong even with all the miles we travel. Looking at these stats you can also see clearly the ‘family feel’ that we pride ourselves on shine through. Watching young 16 year olds doing battle with the 60 year olds, watching brothers, sisters, mums, dads and uncles compete against each other always makes me really proud of what we have achieved.
Giving young competitors the opportunity to race with their hero’s, for example watching a 17 year old Cory Lincoln line up beside a legend like Danny Smith or 16year old Cheian Perrett get to race against Terry McCarl is really cool. Every driver, crew, sponsor & official should take the time to be proud of their achievements because we are. I wonder what amazing stats I can add to our history next season.” Mandy says.
Below are podium winners from the first season and highlights the loyalty of All Star teams. Darren Hickman these days has his son racing and also sponsors the series. Tony Moule is still competing and Lauren White (Densley). Lauren has since retired from racing
